Halo Sleep Sack #Giveaway @HaloSleepSack







October is SIDS Awareness month. SIDS is the leading cause of death among infants one month to one year.  
According to a recent article on Today, SIDS and other sleep related deaths are the third leading cause of infant mortality in the US. After the first month of a baby’s life, they are the leading cause.  





Here are some tips from HALO 
  • Place baby to sleep on his or her back at naptime and at night time.
  •  Room-share, but don’t bed share; the American Academy of Pediatrics recommend against bed sharing as it can lead to an increased risk for accidental suffocation.
  • Use a crib or bassinet that meets current safety standards with a firm mattress that fits snugly and is covered with only a tight-fitting crib sheet.
  • Remove all soft bedding and toys from your baby’s sleep area (this includes loose blankets, bumpers, pillows and positioners). The American Academy of Pediatrics suggests using a wearable blanket instead of loose blankets to keep your baby warm.
  • Offer a pacifier when putting baby to sleep. If breastfeeding, introduce pacifier after one month or after breastfeeding has been established.
  • Breastfeed, if possible, but when finished, put your baby back to sleep in his or her separate safe sleep area alongside your bed.
NEVER
  • Never put your baby to sleep on any soft surface (adult beds, sofas, chairs, water beds, quilts, sheep skins etc.)
  • Never dress your baby too warmly for sleep; keep room temperature 68-72 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • Never allow anyone to smoke around your baby or take your baby into a room or car where someone has recently smoked. 
  • More information can be found at halosleep.com

During SIDS Awareness Month in October, HALO is running “30 Days of Giveaways” on their Facebook page. Each Friday, a HALO Bassinet will be given away.
